About the Owner/Advertiser, Mr Stephen Melhuish

We are almost retired and spend several months in France either at this or another property we own in Allier.<br/>The change of pace when we cross the channel is what we like about living in France.<br/>We have been letting for five years now and our guests love the area and the property as much as we do.<br/>

Year property purchased 2012
Why this location? We chose this area of France as it is peaceful and rural much like our current home in Wales.
Unique benefits of property La Gravette is rural with plenty of countryside to explore yet within easy reach of shopping and other facilities.
The private above ground pool is adored by guests in the hot weather and the air-conditioned cottage allows those who wish to escape the extremes of temperature to do so.

The Owner Recommends

Le Chuchal

Parisian style fancy food. Superb. Menu available in English. You must book for evenings and weekends. Tiny bit of English spoken.
